Lake Chalice The Falcon Marlborough Riesling 2020

and apricots with a balanced sweetness.
Producer Note
Lake Chalice was established in 1989 with a vision of producing internationally
recognised wines from the heart of the Marlborough region. New Zealand’s native
falcon, the ‘Kārearea’, is proudly displayed on every bottle of Lake Chalice wine.
Kārearea favour the remote mountains and foothills of the upper Awatere and Wairau
valleys and these valleys are home to Lake Chalice’s three unique vineyard sites. Each
vineyard has a diverse microclimate, biodiversity and terroir which are seamlessly
translated into multi award winning wines by talented winemaker Chloe Gabrielsen.
Taking a boutique approach she handcrafts parcels of fruit from single vineyards into
elegant, aromatic, fruit driven wines and has garnered a global reputation of
outstanding quality. Certified ‘Sustainable Winegrower of New Zealand’.
Vintage
The 2020 vintage saw less than ideal flowering conditions, which led to below average
yields. Despite this, the fruit quality was exceptional, displaying incredible varietal
character and depth of flavour.
Vineyard
The fruit is harvested from a single vineyard, the Walsh block in the Woodbourne area of
Marlborough's central Wairau region. The berries are carefully selected at harvest time
and are picked at an average of only 19.8 Brix, in order to retain the fresh citrus
flavours. The vineyard’s stony, sandy soil results in low yields of intensely flavoured fruit
from a combination of different pruning methods.
Winemaking
The grapes underwent a long, cool fermentation under temperature controlled
conditions in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was arrested in order to create an offdry style and lower alcohol.
Tasting Note
A refreshing Riesling with enticing aromas of apple and pear layered with ripe and juicy
citrus notes. Harmoniously balanced with great structure and a long, lingering off-dry
finish.
